Need a jump start on a DataGrid

Hi,

I've used DataGrids before with a database.  But i need to format and populate this one by hand.

Can anyone show me what's needed for a simple datagrid with three columns?

Here are the column types: text, double, double
and I'd like the first column to be as wide as 50%, and each of the two equal double columns to be 25%.

I will populate the columns and update them from my own collection. Although I could certainly make a collection that's designed as the data source for this DataGrid if that's easier.

Could you comment on that?

Thanks,
Bob

You could easily just make an in-memory datatable and bind a grid to that. If you think thats a feasible idea let us know and we can provide code samples.

that sounds good.  I was recalling that there's a way to bind an object to a datagrid.  Is that what you mean?

I think that will work well.

                  DataRow row = table.NewRow();
                  row["ID"] = 1;
                  row["FirstName"] = "John";
